Team Profile

The All Stars of the Potomac Wiffleball League are once again headed back to Columbus, Ohio, in mid-July to battle for the national championship of wiffleball, the National Wiffle League Association Tournament. The team will play as the PWL Nationals.

This is the third annual tournament, which is co-hosted by the PWL and largely organized by Commissioner Chris Gallaway. The field has expanded to 16 leagues from around the country battling for wiffleball fame in a fast pitch, base running, official yellow bat and ball tournament. A preliminary round of games will seed all 16 teams in a double elimination tournament to determine the champion.

The rules committee expanded the rosters from six players to eight players for this year's tournament. The PWL team will feature five returning players from the 2013 tournament, and three new additions. Nicholas DiCrosta is the only player not returning, though rumors of the shower incident playing a part are widely exaggerated.

The PWL held open tryouts Weeks 2, 3 and 4 of this season to help build the newly expanded roster.

Commissioner Gallaway returns as manager of the team again.

"Last season we were pleasantly surprised at our improvement. This season, with the open tryouts, and adding three new pitchers, I'm confident we'll continue to improve. Let's be clear though, beating either WSEM or KWL is a victory even if we lose every other game.".

To help prepare for the tournament, the defending National Champions the Tampa Bay Wiffleball Lightning will be in town for a three game series just before the World Series on June 22nd. Read the full story about the TBW visit below.

PWL To Host National Champs
"We wanted to prepare in the best possible way for this tournament. Having the team that won it all last year come to DC, and scrimmage against our guys was the best way to do that i think," Gallaway said.
